is the president still talking about it? >> and that debate, what happened? >> gov. romney had a good night. i had a bad night. >> how bad? >> it is not the first bad that i have ever had. >> if the polls were to be believed, it was a bad, bad night. the president was still talking about a week later. checking the polls, pew, romney's performance erases obama leed. >> my good conservative friend was telling me about the sinister conspiracy of the polls. that they were all rigged, giving the impression that the liberals are running away with the election. and all the sudden you have conservatives hijacking the polls and you have dispirited and liberals. the liberals were dispirited. there was a sense of real puzzlement, where was the president? why did he not show up? these are people who have been picking out their inaugural outfits. the romney people, prior to that debate were heading for the lifeboats. they thought it was over and they were going to concentrate on holding on to the house and may be winning the senate. it was transformational in that sense. in the political world, however, has no

continues to call himself a "pro-life candidate." meanwhile, romney shows growing support among women in the latest polls, following his strong debate performance, almost closing the gender gap. so congresswoman norton, will a more moderate mitt appeal to women voters? >> bonnie, not unless women develop political amnesia and forget the mitt of the tea party republican debates. >> as long as mitt romney is unequivocal about his economic plan and makes a clear contrast between obama's failed policies and how they have hurt women and children, his plan will be that will help women and families, i think heal continue on this can be he'll continue on this up with yard trend with women. >women. >> he shouldn't be allowed on get away with this twice. he did this in the run-off to the governor of massachusetts. he moved strongly to the middle and women were convinced it was true, and then he went back to being the right wing mitt and now that's trying to convince us that he's really a moderate after all. i don't think women will be fooled twice. >> it's interesting that this shift is coming

polls that have been taken since the debate are looking a little bit better for romney so we color those sort of a pink. but ohio still looking good for the real estate, wisconsin looking good and even in some of these polls virginia is looking good for him storks what we have seen, at least at the moment in this snap hot is a little bit of a breakdown in what was before the debate a kind of steady success for the president and all of the ten or so battleground states. >> rose: so right now we are waiting right now now for the next debate to where the campaign is. >> we are wait gog the next debate but have early voting going on and that's why the this vice presidential debate matters, both democrats and republicans are working the base hard but if you have dispirited people they won't muscle it up and do the early vote, i think if biden injects some energy in the democrats that will help with the votes being cast right now in the important battle ground states. >> rose: i raised this question earlier do we expect to see more of the quote, moderate romney in this campaign? >> mark halper

schwartz runs quinnipiac universitys polling institute. >> right now, pew has romney up by three points. gallup has obama up by five points in their seven-day track, but since the debate they have obama up by just three points. >> reporter: or how about old friend ray fair, an economist we've been visiting every four years since the george h.w. bush administration. he's got an economic model. >> so right at this moment, its 49.5% of the two-party vote for obama. >> reporter: so the polls and models call it a toss-up. but curiously, the betting public tells a very different story. online betting prediction markets, like ireland's intrade, which takes bets from americans, and england's betfair, which doesnt, have made obama the strong favorite for months. the lone domestic and entirely legal betting haven, the iowa electronic markets at the university of iowa. ever frugal, we asked hari srinivasan, our man in the midwest-- at least last week-- re iowa electronic market?is he entire iowa electronic market? >> thiss rvk iser er room right here. he eeirnivasan: nt tse prediction markets righ

into the polls and the upcoming debate. stu, why would with just a month to go why would the romney campaign decide to give yet another speech on foreign policy. >> the campaign has changed this a number of ways. the focus on foreign policy has changed. margaret, a month ago we were still talking almost entirely about jobs and the economy. now we've had a u.s. ambassador murdered in libya. there's been general... much more attention to foreign policy. i think we had good jobs numbers as well. remember that. >> warner: last friday. the romney campaign is looking to go where the ducks are. at this moment the economic numbers are good for the white house but there's more and more controversy about foreign policy and leadership. >> warner: what would you add to that, susan? did they see this as an opportunity to be seized? >> i think the romney camp understands he needs to be seen as a credible commander in chief if he's going to be elected president. there's a bar he needs to get over. i don't think they're going to stick on this issue much it's pretty clear that even though foreign policy has
